Best Sustainable Christmas Gifts To Give in 2022
The phrase ‘sustainable Christmas gifts’ probably makes you think of soy wax candles and baggy hemp pants. But we’re here to break the cliche. It’s time to put something sustainable and seriously fun under the tree. Enter: low-footprint adventures.
When you gift adventure, you stop yourself handing over a tangible object. Something that’s likely to get stashed in a cupboard and probably made of environmentally harmful materials. Plus, with many adventure gifts, you get the added environmental bonus of inspiring them to get outside. After all, reconnecting with nature is a guaranteed reminder to be good to the planet.
To help you out, we’ve put together a list of sustainable Christmas gifts that are low footprint. We’re on a journey towards a more sustainable future when it comes to how we offer adventures, and the experiences below are some of our best matched to that vision.
Plus, they are adventures that are sure to impress everyone on your list. Not just your eco-warrior mates!
What is a sustainable Christmas gift?
Sustainable gifts are presents that do as little harm to the environment as possible. They might encourage green living or replace something environmentally damaging with something eco. Most environmentally friendly gifts are longer lasting and of higher quality than conventional gifts. Which is how adventure really wins. Nothing lasts longer than a thrill you remember for decades to come. And quality time with family and friends trumps everything else. Shop all low-footprint adventures here.
How can an experience gift be eco-friendly?
Gifting an experience means you won’t be gifting that pie maker they’ll use twice. Or those wrong-size rayon pyjamas they’ll forget to take back. But there’s more to it than that. Many of our adventures promote mental health and wellbeing, use sustainable practices, reduce our environmental footprint and encourage sustainable living.
Here at Adrenaline, we like to live large and push ourselves to our limits through adventure. But we’ve got no interest in letting nature pay for our good times. This has guided us to a whole stack of great Australian adventure providers who value sustainability like we do. And it’s drawn us to inherently low-footprint adventures like abseiling and hiking. So when you browse our site, you’ll find many experiences that support people doing great work for the planet.
